When the museum hosted an M.C. Escher exhibition last fall, staff set up a spherical mirror outside the gal- lery as a selfi e station, since pho- tography was not allowed inside. The mirror alluded to a famous Escher drawing called "Hand With Refl ecting Sphere," in which the artist looks at himself in a re- fl ective sphere in his hand. Tak- ing pictures in front of the similar mirror gave visitors a more per- sonal take on the artist's style. Sometimes, an art experience extends beyond the gallery walls.
